One of the best parts about parenthood is seeing your own parents marvel at their Grandchild. Both sets of my son’s Grandparents get giddy just talking about him. And when each precious visit comes to an end, they won’t leave without many kisses and the next visit planned! We thought we would honor a few special Grandmothers in today’s post.
Taylor’s Grandmother created a nursery in her own home for her first Grandchild, a real home away from home. And this isn’t just any room with a crib. The walls display elaborately painted murals complete with a carousel, tree house, tree swing and family bulldogs Hailey and Lucy. “They wanted it to be happy, cheerful and playful with elements of us personally.” says Taylor’s mother. Mission accomplished! The hours of planning and painting must make baby Taylor feel extra loved.
Rhonda, owner of Giggles N’ Sugar Kisses teamed up with her daughter’s mother -in-law to create a nursery for their first Grandchild. They let the parents choose from over 200 themes. Frogs and Turtles was chosen and a nursery was set in motion. Both Grandparents had so much fun planning and bringing to life this darling nursery.
“This was our first grandchild, and we were as excited as the expecting parents. I sent my daughter a link that had approximately 200 nursery ideas, and they fell in love with frogs and turtles…They choose the wall color last. They wanted a color that would soothe and calm the future prince, so they decided to paint the walls blue…The diaper cake shown on the dresser was made by the loving hands of Gran. My daughter cherished it so much, she has refused to take it apart. My son-in-law meticulously painted the walls and lined them with the adorable border. The nursery is absolutely beautiful. I love rocking and reading to my grandson among the frogs and turtles when I visit.”
Thanks to all Grandparents out there who help us so much and give our children all that amazing TLC!

Wow, that looks great! Were those murals from stencils or all hand painted?
